Compaq create restore cds

December 13, 2006 at 09:40:17
Specs: xp, various
Is there any way to save the files that create the restore cds on compaq or hp machines? There is a file that might have something to do with it; STRCDC.ini.
Anyone have any ideas?

How did you determine it/come to this conclusion?

It is in the c:\windows\creator directory, which is the directory the executable for creating the cds is in. There are 2 others but this one seems the most likely.

Please open up STRCDC.ini with XP notepad, copy & paste the entire content in your next response. I want to take a look at it.

They appear to be a set command sequences to control some kind of operations (recovery CD?). I failed to see any other usefulness beyond what it was created for. What is it that you are trying to get out of it?

As I understand it you can only create the cds one time, so if you lose or scratch them you are screwed. (Required by M$) Seems to me that the parameters could be changed so that they could be created limitless times.
Surely someone has addressed this before now.

Now I see what you are up to.

Even if I know the answer I won't share it with you because it is tantamount to asking about "cracks" that is strictly forbidden not only here but also on all other good forums as well. Sorry.

On the other hand...

Not necessarily so. You can always order HP/Compaq recovery CD set - it's not that expensive - under $20. Check your manual.

Just create the recovery disks and then create a folder on a hard drive and copy the cd's to that folder. I have done that for a Compaq. It is about 6.98 gb of disks. Takes a while but may be well worth it later.

Actually you can create the disks and then make iso's of them. But I was thinking there ought to be a way to save the original files; short of cloning the hard drive. About 2 DVD's.
